PumpSim™ Proof of Concept commences for Newmont

Newgrange has been engaged to complete a "Proof of Concept" for Newmont Mining in Denver to demonstrate the features and benefits of the PumpSim™ software for mine water management. The initial work will build the mine water networks for supply, drainage and de-watering based on the project mine design. PumpSim™can then be used to analyse the result flow information to help minimise the operating and capital costs of the system. The primary mine water gravity supply networks will model the water supply demand based on alternative schedules and mine equipment. MIne water can then be delivered to de-watering network via mine drainage channels and drain holes. Pipe sizes can be optimised and specific pumps installed to check their suitability and estimate the overall costs of the system
